Thanks for the advice, David. Too bad I didn't ask BEFORE ordering a SoftRock Ensemble! It's already been shipped so I guess I'll use the sound card in my desktop PC when I want to play with it.
Later if I get a bit more serious I might try the Peaberry. Sounds like a great idea to include the A/D conversion on the radio itself, avoiding the hassles.
